There’s A Restaurant On This Remote North Carolina Farm You’ll Want To Visit

In 1945, a young couple named Jess L. Lowe and his wife Lucille Bryan purchased a small amount of farmland. As the years went by, the couple raised four children on the farm and also made their living as tobacco farmers. When it came time to “put in” their crop, neighbors would help, and Lucille would make barn day dinners for all the farmhands. This usually consisted of fried chicken, butter beans, collards, biscuits, potatoes, ham, and sweet tea. As the years went by and all the children left, everyone ventured out into the world and stopped working on the farm.

In the 1980s, a man named Mike and his wife Theresa began working on the farm. This time it wasn’t tobacco, but Christmas trees. Over the years, they both left their day jobs to pursue the farm full time. A bakery was added, then a shop, an animal petting area, and eventually a restaurant. Today, you can enjoy all of the history, and a classic barn day supper at Mike’s Farm in Beulaville.
